The Milo Cup at Millard North
2019 — Omaha, NE/US
Text of message:
Regarding weather, I have spoken to my AD, and he is confident we're good to go without complications this weekend. Again, if your team runs into any trouble, please reach out ASAP by text or call to 402-720-0999. If you're thinking you want to get to MN before the snow starts in the midday, we can have folks set up in our cafeteria anytime from 8AM on. Please contact me directly if that is something you need as it is my intention to get to the school sometime around 9:30 or 10, so I'll need to modify my plans to welcome you to the school earlier in the morning.
I've had a few teams inquire about lunch on Friday. I want to make sure teams know to eat lunch prior to arriving at Millard North on Friday as we will only have snacks in the early afternoon and pizza and chicken sandwiches in the late afternoon/early evening. Sorry for that complication!
Judges: if you have posted a joke paradigm or something that is utterly useless (one particular gem reads, "My paradigm is don't ask me my paradigm."), GROW UP AND POST SOMETHING USEFUL! Paradigms are not your opportunity to show off to high school kids or to flex about your accomplishments or establish what magic words will automatically earn 30 speaks. Paradigms are exclusively the venue for you to be an educator who informs students of the metrics that matter in terms of evaluating a rigorous, academic debate. If you cannot muster the energy to be an educator for the five minutes that it takes for you to complete a REAL, HELPFUL, EDUCATIONALLY USEFUL paradigm, that says a lot more about you than any of the angry emails I've gotten about your complete lack of professionalism ever will.
In order to avoid ending this message on a downer, I'll add this:
THANK YOU ALL AGAIN FOR JOINING US AT THE MILO CUP! We appreciate your support of our tournament immensely and aim to give you the best tournament experience you have all year!
